Take a moment to close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and picture yourself in perfect health and wellness. What does it look like to you?
Are you sleeping well, full of energy, able to keep up with the kids, not grumpy with your spouse, running that fun run you have always wanted to do?
It is interesting thinking about what people say they want and what they actually do?
Wellness Coaching can close this gap and allow you to set your vision and guide you to achieve it. Combining Coaching Psychology Behaviour Change and Positive Psychology, and supporting clients along the way. I like to think of myself as your number 1 fan supporting you along the way, so you feel more confident to make those changes. The client sets their OWN unique lifestyle plan to give YOU the results you have always wanted and also NEED in your life right now. Time to get rid of the negative habits and create more positive ones!

Health and Wellness Coaches DO:
- Encourage clients to discover what they want to achieve without telling them what they “should” work towards
- Let clients define their idea of “optimal” wellness as it applies to their life and support clients in defining a clear vision of where they want to go
- Help clients identify the changes they need to make in lifestyle habits
- Help clients build confidence in their ability to make the desired changes
- Encourage clients to set their own goals that are specific and achievable.
- Only provide “expert” information in the area in which they hold national recognized credentials
- Inform their client of what these credentials are
- Help clients come up with strategies to overcome obstacles that might get in the way of their desired change
- Inspire by truly believing in their client’s ability to change and imparting this belief
- Encourage the client to take responsibility and make choices that they have come up with
- Ask more questions than provides answers
- Use their “toolkit” of knowledge in the areas of health, fitness and lifestyle to provide options and choices the client to consider, but only when asking their permission in advance
- Refer clients to appropriately trained health professionals for specific advice or consultation
